Swinging, uptempo, humorous view of hanging out, playing in the country.

LYRIC

Funky in the Country

Walk about a mile with Joey, Ted and Mickey
Barefoot gravel’s gettin’ kinda tricky
Blowin’ my nose on a windy bit o’ shirt tail
Goin’ back home where it’s funky in the country

Have an afternoon o’ sunshine
Skip a rock, maybe kick a tin can
Set the sinker on a trout line
We’ll have a time

Wadin’ in the water, playin’ by the creek side
Tryin’ to catch a crawdad, smoke a little grapevine
Wonder where my dog went, supper’s comin’ sundown
Love it out here where it’s funky in the country

Can’t take the hustle in the city
Too fast, I gotta get a slowdown
Out where it’s peaceful and it’s pretty
Suits me just fine

Chop a little stove wood, stack it on the woodpile
Baitin’ up a trout line, tryin’ to catch a bullhead
Jumpin’ out the hayloft, landin’ on a haystack
It blows my mind

The sun is sinkin’ on the hillside
They’re horseshoe pitchin’ in the backyard
Maybe sip a little moonshine,
White lightnin’ time

Honey love is callin’, supper’s on the table
Later on the front porch, rockin’ in the glider
We agree that we love it in the country
It’s lovely lovin’ in the country

Have an afternoon o’ sunshine
Skip a rock, maybe kick a tin can
Set the sinker on a trout line
We’ll have a time

Walk about a mile with Joey, Ted and Mickey
Barefoot gravel’s gettin’ kinda tricky
Blowin’ my nose on a windy bit o’ shirt tail
Goin’ back home where it’s funky in the country
Goin’ back home where it’s funky in the country
Goin’ back home where it’s funky in the country

Something about the song.

Funky In The Country

Walk about a mile with Joey, Ted and Mickey
Barefoot gravel’s gettin’ kinda tricky
Blowin’ my nose on a windy bit o’ shirt tail
Goin’ back home where it’s funky in the country

Have an afternoon o’ sunshine
Skip a rock, maybe kick a tin can
Set the sinker on a trotline
We’ll have a time

Wadin’ in the water, playin’ by the creek side
Tryin’ to catch a crawdad, smoke a little grapevine
Wonder where my dog went, supper’s comin’ sundown
Love it out here where it’s funky in the country

Can’t take the hustle in the city
Too fast, I gotta get a slowdown
Out where it’s peaceful and it’s pretty
Suits me just fine

Chop a little stove wood, stack it on the woodpile
Baitin’ up a trout line, tryin’ to catch a bullhead?
Jumpin’ out the hayloft, landin’ on a haystack
It blows my mind

The sun is sinkin’ on the hillside
They’re horseshoe pitchin’ in the backyard
Maybe sip a little moonshine,
White lightnin’ time

Honey love is callin’, supper’s on the table
Later on the front porch, rockin’ in the glider
We agree that we love it in the country
It’s lovely lovin’ in the country

Have an afternoon o’ sunshine
Skip a rock, maybe kick a tin can
Set the sinker on a trout line

Barefoot gravel’s gettin’ kinda tricky
Blowin’ my nose on a windy bit o’ shirt tail
Goin’ back home where it’s funky in the country
Goin’ back home where it’s funky in the country
Goin’ back home where it’s funky in the country
